Author Accelerator Member Spotlight: Aditi Banerjee
Celebrating a writer’s success
We’d like to introduce Aditi, one of our Author Acceleratormembers. Aditi recently finished the first draft of her novel and we invited her to sit down for a little interview to talk about her experience. So without further ado, here is Aditi!
Q: Okay, Aditi, can we have the basics about your project and your book coach?
Aditi: My book, The Queen Who Cursed a God is a fantasy novel and I worked on the draft for 6 months. My book coach is Jennifer Hawkins.
Q: How does it feel to have finished?
Aditi: Amazing! A feeling of excitement, fulfillment, hope and having more purpose and meaning to life.
Q: What did you do to celebrate?
Aditi: Nothing yet!
Q: What are your next steps?
Aditi: Finish revisions and begin the querying process.
Q: Why would you recommend coaching to get to a finished draft?
Aditi: Without coaching, I would not have been regular in producing pages and also would not have self-corrected in time to save dozens or hundreds of pages of false starts and wrong turns in telling the story that I wanted to tell.
Thanks so much for taking the time to talk with us, Aditi. And again, congrats on your huge accomplishment!
